I love it, Pat! Waking up in a magical place indeed. Has a friend there with her as well.

To me this feels romantic in a sort of Native American Indian in that way, with totem animals and nature spirits. Also the decoration on the blouse/night gown looks like bead work/embroidery. (I keep flip flopping on that impression). And that so looks like The Plains of North America, with the tall grass and open space. Or maybe more of a Little House on the Prairie kind of space.

Either way, it's very warm and inviting.

thankyou so much eighty, yes the leaves are painted by me, I sort of dab them on with the round brush set at 20, I put the dark first and then add 2 more colors, try it eighty I know you can do it, just dab lightly on your pen:)
D Akey, thankyou so much for your kind comments, I dont know where it is anywhere you want it to be, it is my imaginary place, did have a ref photo for girl and added the bird for the feeling of peace and spirituality:)

Very nice feeling in the painting. I really like that sky and tree, and the colors. The kind of "glowing" sky I would like to get done one day.
